Description

Dan Mangan spent more than a dozen years as a general assignment reporter for The New York Post, where he wrote stories on a wide range of subjects, including the Sept. 11 terror attacks, the off-field activities of New York Yankee Alex Rodriguez, and a rabbi who arranged for a bar mitzvah party in a Manhattan jail for an inmate's son.

Dan got his start in journalism writing obituaries for his hometown newspaper, The Hour, in Norwalk, Connecticut. Later on, Dan was a reporter at The Stamford Advocate, also in Connecticut, where, among other assignments, he covered the trials of Alex Kelly, a local high school athlete who became an international fugitive. Kelly spent more than seven years on the run before being extradited from Switzerland to the United States and convicted of rape.

Today, Dan writes about politics for CNBC.com. I caught up with him recently and, naturally, we talked about the craft of journalism.
